Our shore excursion highlights are as follows:
Amalfi Coast (Salerno), Italy
Leisurely Amalfi by Land and Sea
Take your time as you enjoy the amazing Amalfi Coast from the brilliant-blue Mediterranean. Cruise along the scenic coastline filled with pastel-colored villages, majestic rock formations and jewel-like grottos. Then explore the narrow streets of the quaint town of Amalfi, a maritime super-power of the Middle Ages. Use your free time to shop, relax, or tour the Cathedral of St. Andrew, built in the 11th century and featuring ornate bronze doors from Constantinople.
Venice, Italy (Overnight)
Explore the rich history and vibrant culture of "The Floating City", as you ride in a private boat and view Venice's significant landmarks by water. Glide peacefully along the expansive Giudecca Canal, passing by picturesque Venetian islands, the ancient Armenian Monastery, the 16th century San Pierto di Castello church, and the walled-in Arsenale industrial complex. Travel up to the island of Murano, home to a bevy of glassblowing factories where skilled artisans create exquisite glass artworks.
Ancient Salona & Town of Trogir
Explore Croatia's rich historical past, when you visit the Roman ruins of Salona and the medieval town of Trogir. See the remains of temples, amphitheaters and early Christian churches at Salona, a Roman settlement that flourished in the 3rd and 4th centuries. Take a scenic drive along the Riviera of the Seven Castles, then arrive at Trogir, site of stunning landmarks such as the Cathedral of St. Lawrence, the Cipiko Palace and the Kamerlengo Fortress.
